Rosie swings brightly--BRAVO, ROSEMARY CLOONEY !!!

"Swing Around Rosie is a wonderful Rosemary Clooney CD. I am baffled as to why this is out of print; it's a very good album. The sound quality is excellent and the artwork reflects good judgment. The Buddy Cole Trio plays magnificently, too.

The album starts off with Rosemary singing "'Deed I Do." "'Deed I Do" is a bouncy little tune that celebrates the joys of being in love. The Buddy Cole Trio throws in some mighty fine organ playing for the musical arrangement; and it all holds its own very well. "'Deed I Do" makes a strong start for this album. "You Took Advantage Of Me" features Rosemary singing this with a slower tempo than I'm used to--but she delivers this so well it's really very pretty. Rosemary's excellent timing enhances her performance, too.

"Blue Moon" is a classic love song that Rosemary aces so easily; her somewhat more mature voice sounds great and The Buddy Cole Trio supplies an excellent arrangement to accompany Rosemary as she sings. "A Touch Of The Blues" features Rosemary squarely in the spotlight--right where she belongs!

"Goody, Goody" is a cover song that Rosemary makes all her own with her timing and diction; The Buddy Cole Trio play the organ and more to make this number truly stand out as one of the highlights of this album. Listen also for "Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me." This is yet another classic ballad featuring some great percussion while Rosemary sings this with all her heart and soul. How wonderful!

"I Wish I Were In Love Again" gets the royal treatment from Rosemary as she bats this right out of the ballpark. Rosemary's voice is again in excellent form and The Buddy Cole Trio plays beautiful music to make "I Wish I Were In Love Again" a very appealing number.

"Sunday In Savannah" is another charming ballad Rosemary Clooney fans are sure to enjoy; and the album ends well with Rosemary performing "This Can't Be Love." Rosemary sings this with plenty of enthusiasm and all her heart--excellent! "This Can't Be Love" really makes a fine, upbeat ending for this CD.

Rosemary Clooney fans will want this CD for their collections; it's absolutely wonderful. People who enjoy classic pop vocals will want this, too.

"As a die-hard Rosemary Clooney fan, I've been looking for this LP for years! I'm thrilled that it is finally available in the US on CD. It was definitely worth the wait. I wish Verve had seen fit to give us the musician info and new liner notes I've come to expect from them, but just having this is wonderful. I love to hear 50's-60's era Clooney recordings, and this is a welcome addition to my collection"
Rosemary C. in her element!

"This lovely reissue brings back one of Rosemary Clooney's most sought-after albums of the 60's - 'Swing Around Rosie'. Accompanied by the Buddy Cole Trio, this album is pure FUN!Rosemary Clooney swings through numbers like "Goody Goody", "This Can't Be Love" (from THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE), "Deed I Do", "You Took Advantage of Me" and "Moonlight Mississippi (A Whistle-Stop Town)".Jauntily-orchestrated by the Buddy Cole Trio, Rosemary is in her element, singing these superb numbers. This limited edition reissue reproduces the album complete with the Coral logo and the original liner notes. It's being discontinued in 2005 but I hear that copies will get harder and harder to get as early as next year, so I advise you to snap up this superb CD while you can!Highly-recommended for Rosemary Clooney and show music fans."
